I have a timer job that is running some powershell.

The script creates a content database and then attempts to create a site collection. If run from powershell prompt the script works fine. If I comment out the New-SPSite and run within timer job it works fine. The error occurs running New-SPSite within the timer job.

$date = Get-Date  
$dateString = $date.ToString("MMddHHmm")    
$server = "SERVER-NAME"  
$dbname = "prefix" + $dateString  
$webapp = "http://SERVER-NAME:4321/"   
$siteName = "http://SERVER-NAME:4321/sites/" + $dbname  
$quotaTemplateName = "1GB"   
$owner1 =   "DOMAIN\svcUser"  

New-SPContentDatabase -Name $dbname -DatabaseServer $server -WebApplication $webapp | out-null 

New-SPSite -URL $siteName -OwnerAlias $owner1 -SecondaryOwnerAlias $owner2 -ContentDatabase $dbname -Template STS#0 | out-null 

The error I get is ERROR: Failed to OpenThreadToken, LastError=1008
